This luscious dessert wine is deep amber to tawny in colour with olive green hues. The wine exhibits classic perfumed aromas of the Muscat grape – lifted florals of rose petal, ginger spice and orange peel, with butterscotch and fruitcake. The palate is soft, silken and luscious in texture, quite viscous and concentrated, then richly flavoured showing a melange of raisined fruit, wood aged characters, fruitcake and spices, finishing with delicate and integrated spirit. This is an indulgent and seamless wine.
98 Points Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The non-vintage Museum Reserve Muscat is exotic, full-bodied, rich, and sweet. It spent 7 years in wood, and was bottled from a solera system. This amber-hued, rich, unctuously-textured effort boasts luscious aromas and flavors of marmalade, figs, chocolate, melted caramel, toffee, and prunes. Once again, Australia proves this country is hard to beat when it comes to their fortified after-dinner wines, which still sell for a song.
Made predominantly from the brown, red and black sports of the Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains grape. Briefly fermented on skins to soften and release the flavours from the shrivelled and partially raisined berries. After draining and pressing, the fermentation is arrested by fortification with neutral grape spirit to retain the varietal flavours and liqueur sweetness in the wine.
The vintage wines are then put into small oak barrels to mature, producing complex wines with raisin and fruitcake flavours. After many years of maturation, a selection of older and younger wines are judiciously blended to produce a complex and balanced wine displaying fruit and aged characters. The base blend, from which the Antique Muscat is bottled, is regularly re-blended to perpetuate the consistency and complexity of this classic style from year to year.
